Christian leaders react to Kogi church attack, accuse Jonathan of not doing enough yet
Christian leaders in the country have continued to express their anger over the continuous attacks of churches across the country without any serious effort towards bringing the perpetrators to book. They had concluded that continuous insecurity in a country leads to instability. The group had advised the president to attack this insecurity in the most aggressive way before it generates into another religious war.
The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, in a message to Nigeria over the recent attacks ob churches had condemned the mindless attack on innocent worshippers. The Special assistant to the National President of CAN, Mr. Kenny Ashaka, who spoke on behalf of the CAN president, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor said: “We don’t want a situation where many Christians are daily being slaughtered like animals. The latest attack on Christians is totally condemnable, intolerable because it is callous and inhuman.”
The CAN president therefore called on the Federal Government to take a decisive action on this nagging issue before it is too late, noting “we have been at the forefront of this call”.
The National Secretary of the umbrella body of Pentecostalism in Nigeria, the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, Pastor Wale Adefarasin also expressed his disappointment over insecurity in the country, stating that it was unfair that the pages of newspapers are now flooded with news of attacks on churches.
Reacting in a telephone interview, the Director of Social Communications at the Catholic Archdiocese of Lagos, Rev. Monsignor Gabriel Osu also condemned the attacks in totality.
According to him,“Anybody with his right senses and desires peace will condemn a barbaric act such as that,”
